I listen to Knife Edge Chop mainly because a buddy of mine does it, but it is rather negative when it comes to WWE and I try to see the good in a lot of things.
I also listen to Straight Shootin which is pretty good. Although, sometimes it is too positive, I know, I know.
I also just listening to Women Hit Hard on The Fan Podcast. It was okay... It is a short WWE/NXT Women's podcast, but her accent is rather thick and find myself having to intently listen in order to fully understand. It was okay... Not sure I am going to come back. I was hoping she was going to get into Shimmer and Shine and Chikara.
What say you? What wrestling podcasts do you listen to?
The Rough House Podcast: Love Justin and Christoff, super funny, but simultaneously very insightful, definitely one my favorites. Be warned, ALOT of strong language, and irreverent jokes, but personally, that's why I love them.
Doing The Job: Great podcast based out of New York, also very funny, but they have very provocative commentary on the current product, particularly with WWE. They also have an ongoing "Prediction League" which is great.
Grantland Cheap Heat: Fairly famous podcast hosted by Peter Rosenburg, entertaining all around, and occasionally have pretty famous wrestling guests showing up.
I also tend to check out Stone Cold's podcast from time to time, and OCCASIONALLY Jericho's (Jericho's podcast has gotten fairly annoying the past year or two).

I dig the Pro Wrestling Mothership on the Pro Wrestling IA network, mainly because I have connected with Dustin before and they are stand up guys. Plus I dig that they cover some of the Midwest's local promotions.
Stone Cold's podcast is fun but I can't listen to it with any kind of regularity cuz it's just ridiculous with ads and they drive me crazy.

I am an on-again/off-again subscriber to Wrestling Observer/Figure 4 Daily. So that makes me on board for the following: Wrestling Observer -Dave Meltzer & Bryan Alvarez ***** (in depth news coverage) Wrestling Observer Live -Bryan Alvarez & Mike Sempervive *** (day-to-day reviews) DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling -Karl Stern *** (history of wrestling) Bryan & Vinny Show -Bryan Alvarez & Vinny V **** (currently reviewing RAW & Nitro episodes in chronological order) Wrestling Weekly -Les Thatcher *** (an old school pro gives his take on current developments)
As for non-Observer podcasts: Art of Wrestling -Colt Cabana **** I was a longtime AOW listener. I've been a lapsed listener for about 3 or 4 months. I credit him for bringing me back into wrestling years ago and for making me pay attention to people on the indies. Learned about Pac (Neville) and Kevin Steen (Owens) from their interviews, then watched them rise. I ONLY knew about the awesomeness of women's leagues due to his interviews and then watched Sara Del Rey produce an incredible roster in NXT. Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard -Bruce Prichard & Conrad Thompson **** walk through a classic WWE event each week that Prichard helped to book. Can be very annoying and Prichard can be quite the infallible McMahon apologist, but hearing the inside scoop is something.
Podcasts I've dropped: MatMen ** -Two guys from Queens give their take on wrestling each week. One of the guys bothered me too much (-repeats Observer lines ver batim as something 'he was told' and a bit of an elitist). Good production, though, and the other guy is great! The Ross Report ** -Came off as a bit stale. Jim is way more impressed with his impressions than I am. He gets good interviews, but everyone seems more guarded than they are with Austin or Colt. Keeping it 100 with Konnan * -Was my only insight into the lucha circuit, but Konnan has far too many axes to grind on that show. Also too dismissive of women (wrestling or otherwise) for me. Jim Cornett Experience ***- Good for the rants, but better in doses. 6:05 Superpodcast ***-I can't really justify a 3+ hour weekly wrestling podcast. Amazing impressions and always left with some great wrestlecrap moments to lookup, but...ya know. 3+ hours is...I can't justify it. Steve Austin Show -Great guests. I like Steve. I like Hershey the Wonderdog. I don't know why I don't still subscribe!
